Green Star - Communities Foundation Course

Monday 29th May 2017, 8:30am - 12:30pm

Aurecon, Level 8, 850 Collins Street, Docklands, VIC

The Green Star – Communities Foundation Course teaches the fundamentals of the Green Star - Communities rating tool, in an intensive half-day format. Over four hours, participants learn about the business case for sustainable communities, the categories and credits within the rating tool, and the steps to register and certify a Green Star - Communities project.

The learning format consists of a lecture, Q&A, case studies and small group activities, which provide attendees with:

  • knowledge of the principles underpinning Green Star – Communities
  • an awareness of how Green Star – Communities fits within the broader set of Green Star rating tools
  • an understanding of the eligibility requirements and the certification process
  • an understanding of how to use the Green Star - Communities Submission Guideline; and
  • an understanding of what the Green Star – Communities categories and credits aim to achieve.

The Green Star – Communities Foundation Course is also an important first step towards becoming a Green Star Accredited Professional (GSAP) – Communities.

We encourage anyone who works on a Green Star - Communities project in any capacity to attend.
